Geoffrey Beattie FBPsS FRSM FRSA is a psychologist, author and broadcaster. He is Professor of Psychology at Edge Hill University[1] and has supervised on the Sustainability Leadership Program at the University of Cambridge and been visiting Professor at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California Santa Barbara.[2] He graduated with a First Class Honours degree from the University of Birmingham and a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College). He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Books[edit]

He has published twenty-five books on a wide range of topics including human communication,[3][4][5][6] ethnographic studies of working-class life in the U.K.,[7][8][9][10] ethnographic studies of sport,[11][12] the psychology of sport,[13][14] general psychology,[15][16] applied social psychology,[17][18][19] and the Troubles in Northern Ireland,[20][21] amongst others.

‘We are the People’ was shortlisted for the Ewart-Biggs Literary Prize.[22] ‘On the Ropes’ was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award.[23] ‘The Psychology of Language and Communication’ was republished in the Routledge Classic Editions series,[24] thirty years after it first appeared. ‘Survivors of Steel City’ formed the basis for the documentary film ‘Tales from a Hard City’[25] (director: Kim Flitcroft) which won the Grand Prix at the Marseilles Film Festival[26] and the Best Regional Film in the Indies Award.[27] Beattie was credited as story consultant on the film.[28]

Beattie has also published two novels – ‘The Corner Boys’ (Victor Gollancz)[29] and ‘The Body’s Little Secrets’ (Gibson Square)[30]. ‘The Corner Boys’, the story of a teenager growing up in a loyalist working-class neighbourhood of Belfast during the Troubles, was shortlisted for the Ewart-Biggs Literary Prize.

‘The Body’s Little Secrets’ (published in 2018) was the story of a social psychologist, Matt, whose research centres on the analysis of nonverbal communication (as does Beattie’s own research). The novel situates the action in Sheffield in Thatcher’s Britain of the early nineteen-eighties, just after the miners’ strike with the mines and the steelworks closing. Matt is trying to make a name for himself as an academic in this changing societal landscape. He is called upon to analyse the CCTV footage of a murder in a nightclub which shows the nonverbal actions of the protagonists, but there is no sound on the tape. So, despite his theoretical understanding that gesture necessarily works with speech, he is asked to make pronouncements on the meaning of the nonverbal action in the videotape without knowing the words in order to further his career.

In a review in the international journal Semiotica,[31] Professor Marcel Danesi, Professor of Semiotics and Linguistic Anthropology at the University of Toronto, described the book as a ‘truly outstanding work’ and wrote that ‘With his latest novel, Dr Geoffrey Beattie can now be projected onto the same international platform as the late Umberto Eco, who became famous for integrating semiotic theory with fiction, starting with his bestseller, The Name of the Rose...There is little doubt, in my estimation at least, that Geoffrey Beattie is Eco’s successor, displaying an uncanny and ingenious ability to blend his insightful work on nonverbal semiotics with an exceptional sense for narrative in this outstanding roman-à-clef.’ Danesi added ‘In sum, I will say again that Beattie is Eco’s successor. This is not an exaggerated claim. In my view it is a verifiable fact – all one has to do is read the two authors to glean similarities and analogies between them. If I were to teach a course on nonverbal semiotics, I would even use Beattie’s novel as a textbook, given that it would enthral students with its powerful plot, at the same time introducing them to the intellectual importance of decoding the body’s little secrets.’ A review[32] by Brian Maye in the Irish Times described the novel as ‘compelling and well-observed.... incisive and compelling and full of psychological insight.’

Research[edit]

Beattie’s research falls within the broad areas of embodied cognition/multi-modal communication and applied social psychology particularly in the areas of sustainability and race where he researches the relationship between explicit and implicit processes,[33] and the societal implications of any possible ‘dissociation’ here.[34]

Multi-modal Communication[edit]

His long-standing interest in multi-modal communication offers a major reconceptualization of nonverbal communication and the interaction between language and nonverbal communication in talk. He has explored the cognitive, social and pragmatic functions of the iconic gestures that accompany speech, including the role of iconic gesture in lexical retrieval and how gestures and speech complement each other in intricate ways in semantic communication. He was awarded the Spearman Medal[35] by the British Psychological Society for ‘published psychological research of outstanding merit’ for some of his work in this area. His research shows that both verbal and nonverbal elements are critical to everyday semantic communication and that iconic gestures reflect unarticulated aspects of thinking. This has implications for how we think about speech and human communication. He has researched how listeners decode iconic gestures and how, and why, certain gestures attract the gaze fixations of listeners and the implications of this for communicative effectiveness. He has explored the possible applications of this theoretical perspective for advertising and for deception, where gesture-speech mismatches may occur, along with structural changes in the phases of gestures. This research won the international Mouton d’Or prize[36] for the best research paper in semiotics. He has also considered the implications of this close connection between speech and bodily movement for the organisation of conversations themselves and particularly for turn taking in conversation.

Sustainability[edit]

Another strand of his research is into the psychological barriers that prevent consumers adopting more sustainable lifestyles in the light of the threat posed by climate change. He has challenged the established orthodoxy in this field. DEFRA, and others, have argued that the promotion of more sustainable behaviour is essentially just an ‘informational’ issue because the public already have the right underlying attitudes to environmental issues like carbon footprint (measured using various self-report instruments). For this reason, carbon labels were introduced. Beattie’s experimental research, using eye tracking, showed that there was minimal visual attention to carbon labels and that explicit self-reported attitudes to carbon footprint did not actually predict visual attention to climate change images. Measures of implicit attitude, where such attitudes are largely unconscious and measured through speed of association, were, however, better predictors of both attentional focus and behavioural choice under certain conditions. Dispositional optimism also seems to affect visual attention to climate change images and this links to optimism bias (He presented this research at the British Academy Summer Showcase in 2018 where the best research funded by the B.A. is highlighted).[37] He has explored new segmentation analyses of consumer markets based upon the intersection of explicit and implicit attitudes and researching how to change both types of attitude, necessary to produce the radical shift in consumer behaviour required to combat climate change.

Beattie presented this research on sustainability at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change at UNESCO headquarters in Paris in July 2015,[38] and with Laura McGuire contributed a chapter to the United Nations International Commission on Education for Sustainable-Development-Practice Report[39] (a report issued every ten years by the U.N. to define priorities in education internationally for the next decade), to be published in 2019.

Implicit Racial Bias[edit]

Another strand of his current research is into implicit racial bias and its effects on everyday life. He has explored how implicit racial attitudes impact on shortlisting decisions. He has shown how gaze fixations, as we consider CVs, are influenced by our implicit attitudes, and he has investigated how these impact on the representations that we build up of the various candidates under consideration, thereby influencing our final ‘rational’ decision about the relative suitability of the candidates. He has researched how people justify and rationalise their everyday decisions that often result from processes that are more implicit. Using the terminology of the Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, he has explored how System 1 and System 2 interact in everyday life and the implications of this interaction for both behaviour and talk. He has given a number of significant keynote addresses on this theme at a variety of applied conferences, including the Annual Conference of the Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, the Asian Fire Service Association National Conference, the Equality Challenge Unit Biennial Conference, the Respect Difference Conference, Police Service of Northern Ireland etc.

The overarching focus of his research has been on how human beings communicate and make decisions in their everyday social worlds, with emphasis on the more unconscious and implicit aspects of these everyday processes. He has been interested, throughout his career, in the real-world relevance of his research.


Outreach[edit]

Beattie was President of the Psychology Section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 2005-6 and has given many keynote addresses to a range of audience, including public lectures at Gresham College, the International Psychology Conference in Dubai, the Psychology Teacher National Conference, the European Conference on Psychology and the Behavioral Sciences, Techkriti, the Annual Technical and Entrepreneurial Festival Kanpur, India, both Houses of Parliament through the Westminster Food and Nutrition Forum, the Star lecture at the University of Manchester etc. He has also spoken at various music and book festival including ‘The Secret Garden Party’, ‘Shambala’ and the Edinburgh, Munich and Cheltenham Book Festivals

He is also well known for bringing analyses of behaviour, and particularly nonverbal communication, to a more general audience by appearing as the on-screen psychologist on eleven series of Big Brother[40] in the U.K. and for explaining how psychology can be used by people in their everyday lives.[41] His work in psychology has been extensively covered in the national and international media.[42]

Beattie was an external consultant on the Leadership Vanguard (LV) with Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever, and others. LV is a major global initiative that seeks to identify, support and mobilise future-fit leaders – all in the interest of reinventing growth. Inspired by CEOs such as Paul Polman and Ajay Banga, and instigated by Xyntéo and DNV GL, the Vanguard partnership includes Unilever, MasterCard, Woodside, Singapore’s Economic Development Board, Ericsson, Energias de Portugal and the International Committee of the Red Cross. This organisation helps shape the sustainability policy of Unilever and other leading multinationals.
